Good Luck Guys!!!

INDIANAPOLIS by 9 Rating: 1 Star

ND rolled CIN 27-0 TY as a 3.5 pt HF as the Bengals had just been slammed by NE & then pulled a tie vs CAR at home the week prior. CIN's 135 yds were a season low & they had 10 3-&-outs in the game. IND went 6-2 SU/ATS at home TY for +88 ypg (-4 TO's) while CIN is 5-3 SU/4-4 ATS on the road for -18 ypg (+0 TO's). CIN is off B2B high intensity games vs DEN/PIT & this is their 3rd road game in 4 Wks. Dalton is 0-3 SU/ATS in the playoffs avg 239 ypg (57%) 1-6 & now faces a better than expected IND secondary.
OC Hue Jackson took the ball out of Dalton’s hands TY & he has the fewest pass att’s in his career. His 19-17 ratio is pedestrian but AJ Green missed 3 games w/ inj. Jeremy Hill finished 8th in rushing the best mark for a rookie RB TY & his power rushing style gives CIN needed attitude. CIN topped 2,000 yds rushing & allowed the least amount of sacks since 2007 (17) despite a unit that hasn’t started the same 5 OL for more than 3 games. CIN’s DL/DB’s have been very healthy TY but the LB’s have been mauled by injury with 6 different starters. CIN went 4-4 SU/ ATS vs foes that finished w/a winning record for -74 ypg (+0 TO's).
Luck has his 3rd straight 11 win season & finished 2nd in pass yds largely due to the lack of a reliable run game. Hilton has earned the right to be called a #1 WR & Wayne remains a dangerous #2 but IND is really a 2 TE team at this point. The OL has had 8 consecu- tive different starting combos coming into this game so it not 100% on the RB's for the #22 rush attack. IND's defense has been rather healthy (FS Landry was susp) TY with the CB's being the strength. IND went 4-5 SU/4-4-1 ATS vs winning teams for +5 ypg (-7 TO's).
This is CIN's 3rd road game in 4 Wks & they are off 4 high profile games in a row with a beat up AJ Green. Luck got the offense back in step LW & the defense will have the crowd backing.This is a good CIN team but their lack of pass rush is a huge issue

UNDER Detroit/Dallas Rating:3 Star

DAL is in the playoffs for the 1st time in 4 yrs thanks to its best record s/'07. The Cowboys went 4-4 SU/3-5 ATS at home TY with +16 ypg (-4 TO's) while DET is 4-4 SU/2-6 ATS on the road +6 ypg (+2 TO's). Both teams have matured in 2014 with DET's defense carrying the load while DAL's run gm on offense has been the best in the NFL. This is DET's 1st playoff game in 3Y & they don't have DAL depth there in terms of experience.
DET earned 822 fewer yards than 2013 in Caldwell's 1st year but the Lions are more balanced & less reliant on Megatron to make things go. Stafford's mechanics have been a sore point but he has 7 fewer Ints than LY & Golden Tate has arguably been the best offensive FA pickup TY. Bell has been the tough runner that DET lacked LY.The DL has been the heart & soul of the team with just 2 games of 100+ yds rushing & the secondary has had a huge turnaround in health starting the same unit for 13 straight games. DET is 1-4 SU/ATS vs foes that finished w/a winning record for -40 ypg (-1 TO's).
The Cowboys OL has been the best in the NFL for 2014. Murray has taken the pressure off Romo to do it all while Bryant has finally matured into a complete WR.Witten doesn't have the usual numbers but teams know he's not the 1st option anymore. Former DET HC Marinelli has been a genius getting the most he can out of a D who's lone 1st Rd DC starter is former OAK castoff McClain. DAL gives up pass yds in bunches but boast a 4-7 ratio in Dec. The Cowboys went 4-2 SU/3-3 vs foes w/a winning record +45 ypg (-1 TO's).
DET is 5-11 O/U TY and in their road gms, the avg combined score was just 36 ppg. This is the 2nd highest total for them all yr & their #1 rush D is a great matchup vs DAL's #1 rush offense. On the flip side, DAL avg'd 9 ppg less on offense at home TY compared to on the road and we'll take the UNDER here.
